A Bianca Boeckel Galeria displays "One Minute Before“, visual artist São Paulo Camila Alvite, curated by Bianca Boeckel. In his second solo show at gallery, the artist presents his latest production 15 oil on canvas paintings, which show an alternation process in the focus of his work, in exercising leadership by putting highlighted – questioning his own figure – represented in different characters.
“One Minute Before"Expresses an intimate connection with the current creative process Camila Alvite: to imagine a scene, a sensation, just a moment, the artist is characterized with makeup and props. Then, shooting or ask someone to shoot and, from these images, performs paintings. “It was a fluke. Me interested in the technical, I wanted to make a picture. I had an idea of my makeup all, I called a friend and asked her to photograph me. The elements were appearing, fantasy and character emerged. As before a photograph posada there is one last, deep breath, the exhibition talks about this moment we are still alone. 'One Minute Before' attempts to capture an intimate wire, a touch of hands, a sigh”, explains the artist.
Even about his creation method, Camila Alvite He believes that painting is like a project: “The painting begins long before, in a book I'm reading, a song I'm listening to. Observation comes a scene, ideas come from, the images. The process of the paintings comes before, when it comes time to move on to the screen, painting has happened, It is already settled”. From this, the artist also draws up portraits of friends, his grandmother, parents and nephews. Always seeing the person as a way to explore a new technique, on a constant learning, in an attempt to explore a greater meaning.
At the end, which Camila Alvite paints ends up being completely different from the picture, that is only one step. Although the paintings take another path – the colors change, facial expressions also -, show who the person before that time to take the picture, through gesture motion, the countenance, vent and reaction. Yet, from the same image, It produces different screens, at different times. “But I'm always playing a character, that moment before the picture – serving as a reference of what I show in the paint”, comments.
This self-portraits and portraits of work, Camila Alvite advances and creates figures with covered face, off, “as beings seeking a way to exist”. In his words: “It's like if I asked: Who is that person, what it means? I sought inspiration in the book 'Inventories Minimum', David Lapoujade, which deals with the potential that accompany each existence”. About this, curator comments: “When you poses for a photograph, you want to show your best version. The artist, In this job, captures what the photo does not show, a story that is not being revealed”.
By leaving aside issues that have been recurring in your artwork, Camila Alvite highlights a new aspect, developed and studied over the past 5 years: the pictures. About this change, Bianca Boeckel comments: “With paintings of animals and architecture, was always a fantastic and impersonal universe - had the trace of the artist, but the focus was another. From there, there was a disruption to create other scenes, people and interactions. I realize that she needed to go to the peak of the auto exposure, which is a large self-portrait, to find a serenity and back. Thus, could break shyness, your fears, and feel safe to find a new path”.
